The 2016 Joanne M. Garvey Award Acceptance Speech
By Hon. Marshall Whitley (Ret.)
Thank you all and good afternoon.
It goes without saying that my selection as this year’s recipient of the Joanne M. Garvey Award is quite gratifying and ego boosting. It is the ultimate "ATTABOY"! When I look over the list of past recipients I am deeply honored and humbled to be included among them. I have great admiration and respect for each of them personally and for their accomplishments.
I am particularly happy to follow last year’s recipient Martin Schainbaum – because in many ways Marty helped me get started here in California. I first met him briefly when I was a trial attorney at the Department of Justice in D.C. around 1981 or ’82. It was at a very provocative panel presentation of called "Tax Litigation in the 80’s" that he had organized in conjunction with Golden Gate University’s LL.M. Tax Program. A couple of years later I relocated to San Francisco and in my networking efforts soon contacted Marty to take him to lunch.
